When you're spitting on soldiers and saying we should hang the President, THEN can we question your patriotism?

UCSB College Republican Chairman Ross Nolan recently attended a left-wing protest and videotaped the entire thing. Of course, there was much America-loving going on there, right alongside the wonderful displays of intelligence, logic, reason, respect for differing opinions, and gratitude for our military. Because, you know, liberals are just so patriotic. They love their country, and as they constantly remind us, dissent and protest is patriotism.

Somehow, though, most Americans who don't hate their country just don't believe it.

But we aren't allowed to question their patriotism, not ever. Not when they fly American flags upside down, an obvious symbol of disrespect. Not when they say that our President should be hung, is worse than Saddam Hussein, and deserves the same fate as the murderous dictator. Not when they call our military murderers and rapists. Not when they spit on soldiers and war veterans. Not when they call our generals traitors and war criminals. Not when they say our country is in "the Dark Ages". Not. Ever.

It's funny though, because as patriotic as they claim to be, I just didn't see a lot of love and appreciation for America in this video:

The best part about that video is that it is so incredibly mock-worthy. These liberals are like walking punchlines! A good number of them are dirty and unkempt. You've got the angry protestors, the dreamy protestors off somewhere in La-La Land (like the Close Gitmo chick in the beginning), the military protestors, the dance-to-the-beat-of-your-own-drum protestors... the very stereotype that most Americans have of clueless hippie liberals. And no matter how inflammatory, insulting, and offensive they may be, no matter how radical and disturbing their views are, they still angrily claim that you aren't allowed to question their patriotism.

Well, too bad. I'm questioning, baby. I'm a patriotism-questioning machine.

Also interesting is how often these morons like to throw out the word FASCISM!!! and pretend we're actually living in a fascist state (as if they could even spell the word fascism, much less understand the meaning of it). Of course, if we actually were living in a fascist state, they wouldn't be having their cute little protests and calling for the President to be hanged. If we actually lived in a fascist state, they'd have been taken out back and shot by now at worst, and at best thrown into a gulag. If they want to see what a fascist state really looks like, maybe they should take a long trip to Cuba or North Korea. Maybe then they'll appreciate their country more.

But don't count on it.

The obvious difference, besides rank, is that none of these were criticized while on active duty. That's not the case with the left's pretrial of General Petraeus as a betrayer even calling him General Betrayus.

Is that the "Murtha" that falsely accused active duty soldiers of murdering civilians. What, we can't point out such facts? And didn't Kerry falsely accuse soldiers in Vietnam of war crimes. Are you saying we can't criticize an individual for making such false accusations even though they hold public office? And yet we're supposed to stand by while such men criticize Bush. Fat chance.

StevefromMKE--why would anybody read Liberal Fascism? The reviews at Amazon are funnier, and save hours! Jonah Goldberg is the stupidest man not named Douglas Feith on the planet. Nobody else on The Corner had anything good to say about that piece of shit book. Good thing WFB Jr. was dead when that abortion was published, else he would've had to have had a serious chat with Lucianne about whether Jonah ought to continue to receive his wingnut welfare checks every month.

Hmmm. Really? Let's check it out.

Here's one from I-tunes user:
My title [Anyone who takes this drivel seriously does not understand fascism or American liberalism!] should explain it all. Goldberg is nothing more than a childish right-wing ideologue, who understand neither fascism, nor American liberalism, nor constructive political discourse. Anyone, who takes this book or its author seriously, understands neither fascism, nor American liberalism. The book is pure garbage.
Hey. That guy sounds like you and he didn't read the book either. Wait a minute, are you I-tunes user?

How about this one from Asinine (good name):
I tried to give this book a chance, but it turned out to be the worst thing I've ever read aside from 'Battlefield Earth.'
Battlefield Earth? Now she is deep. At least she admits she didn't read the book.

Well how about Robert Keith Gargus "moondancer" (hey, that's kind of a pretentious name, isn't it?):
The reality is fascism makes Goldberg uncomfortable. And thats because it's true home is in the close neighborhood of his own neocon ideology.
If there was a thread of interesting conjecture, I'd pass on criticism. But I only see a polemical tract dressed up like a small college term paper.

Big words, but I don't think he read the book either. Otherwise he'd know that the neocon philosophy is not treated well in the last 20 pages of the book. Oops.

Let's hear from Thomas L. Bell "tom3":
This book IS a parody...it is a joke.
It is entirely non-factual and its flawed research has already been thoroughly debunked. Liberals are not fascists...if anything, we're closer to commies. Fascists are the Chimpyloving Repukes who have trashed the Constitution, tortured innocent people, and lied to invade a country for oil. Anybody who would call Liberals fascists is a political idiot. This guy needs to be the Jonah of political authors...he should be shunned by everyone. Why do whackos like him get book contracts??

Uhm. I don't think we need to comment on this one, do we?

You're right, HB, that was entertaining. And I learned something from it: Liberals don't read books.

I have a question. Why is everyone who disagrees with you the stupidest person on the planet? This seems to be a trend with you.

I have to admit the people spitting on the guys just floored me. I had to think what I would have done in the same situation and I couldn't have kept my composure.

Everything else was just the delusional "Everyone just wants to get along except we keep making them mad," way of thinking.

The way the some on the right called Clinton a murderer and rapist?

No, he simply has bad judgment when it comes to affairs. And the murder part? Are you referring to Bosnia/Serbia? Please. Show us a video of conservatives picketing and rallying about the United States in Bosnia.

Shall we compare with remarks made of Clark, Murtha, and Kerry?

I've heard Kerry called a liar, maybe. That I've heard. but not war criminal.

There are books, unfortunately that label Gen. Clark a war criminal for conduct with prisoner bases in the 80's and 90's printed by the editors of a self-proclaimed anti-semetic publication (I'm sure that's a credible source), but Murtha's just a zealot.

And, I guess, after the above posts it'd be silly to kick that third point again.

hyperbolist:

Clay, when the premise of a book is a non-starter, why start reading it? I don't think all people with whom I disagree are the stupidest people on the planet. I have time for lots of conservatives, including some friends and relatives and (gasp!) liberal arts professors with whom I still keep in touch. I just really don't like stupidity in any of its ugly manifestations: Cindy Sheehan, Cassy Fiano, Scrapiron...

Speaking of which, hey Willie, why don't you hop on down to the shopping mall and take spy photos of Arabs buying cell phones or something? I envy exactly nothing of what you have, except the lively political discourse.
